Product description


A New York Times Notable Crime Book of 2011

“A successful stand-alone book. . . . Compelling.”
— Janet Maslin, The New York Times
“A magnificent finale; it’s to be hoped that Mankell may be persuaded to revive his grumpy Nordic inspector, complete with his stomach cramps, failing eyesight and Ikea furniture. He is far too good to lose.”
— Financial Times
“Wallander . . . has become one of the best-loved of all detectives. . . . The Troubled Man delivers in full as a whodunit, as all the Wallander books do. . . . The Troubled Man is a sorrowful––how could it not be?––but fully satisfying conclusion to a great series. No Mankell reader will think of missing it.”
— The Scotsman
The Troubled Man is a first-rate whodunnit. But it’s also a quiet, considered and respectful farewell; a meditation on a life honestly if imperfectly lived.”
The Guardian
“Readers whose knowledge of Scandinavian crime fiction goes beyond Stieg Larsson know that it was Henning Mankell who jump-started what has developed into a twenty-year Golden Age. Mankell’s latest novel, the final volume in the Kurt Wallander series, represents a landmark moment in the genre comparable to the swan songs of Ian Rankin’s John Rebus and John Harvey’s Charlie Resnick. . . . Always a reticent man, Wallander shows an intensity of emotion here, a last gasp of felt life, that is both moving and oddly inspiring. An unforgettable series finale.”
— Booklist (starred review)
Praise for Henning Mankell:

“To his legions of North American readers, Henning Mankell is the unrivalled master of Swedish crime fiction and one of the finest practitioners of the genre anywhere.”
 — Toronto Star
“Mankell, like Stieg Larsson, appreciates the secrets and the sin lurking beneath all that pristine Swedish snow.” 
 — Maureen Corrigan, NPR
“For me, Henning Mankell is by far the best writer of police mysteries today. He is in the great tradition of those whose works transcend their chosen genre to become thrilling and moral literature.”
 — Michael Ondaatje
“Henning Mankell . . . kicked open the door for the Nordic whodunit. Mankell’s lugubrious Swedish detective, Inspector Kurt Wallander, is one of the most impressive creations in crime fiction today. Grumpy detectives are a staple of the genre, and Wallander is fabulously grumpy.”
 — The Guardian
